Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All the publicly recognized economic geniuses seem to have one talent: the ability to tell us what happened yesterday.

Anyone here could do that, so what are these people paid for? Everyone knew this was a bubble and yet there is no mechanism apparently for dealing with bubbles before they become "too big to burst", no mainstream notion that that would even be desirable - because really it's all bubbles and who are we to discriminate? Is that the idea?

If this is the scienco of economics, just give me back my LSD.
